Announcement

Godfrey & Kahn Fellowships Awarded to Law School Students in Wisconsin

September 12, 2006

The law firm of Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Marquette University Law School to establish the Godfrey & Kahn Fellowship in Law. The Firm has a similar fellowship at the University of Wisconsin Law School. These full-tuition law fellowships are awarded annually to one first-year law student, with the selection designed to promote diversity within the law school student body.

Fellowship recipients are mutually determined by Godfrey & Kahn and the schools, and each recipient receives the scholarship for each of the three years he or she is enrolled in law school. In addition to the three-year scholarship, the fellowship provides each law student with mentoring by Godfrey & Kahn attorneys as well as employment as a summer associate at the Firm.

Fellowship Recipients Named

Joshuah Torres, an incoming first-year student at Marquette University Law School, has been selected as the recipient of the first Godfrey & Kahn Fellowship in Law. Torres is a 2004 graduate of the University of California, San Diego, where he majored in management science and received Provost’s Honors and was a member of the National Dean’s List. In addition, Torres has worked as a legal assistant for two law offices in California.

Alfonso N. Cornish II, an incoming first-year student at the University of Wisconsin Law School, has been selected as the recipient of the Godfrey & Kahn Fellowship in Law. He received both his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree, cum laude, from Florida A&M University. In addition, he has worked as a financial analyst for the past five years, including international finance experience in Europe.

“The Godfrey & Kahn Fellowship programs will enable talented and hard-working students to pursue a career in law and prepare to make valuable contributions to our society,” said Rick Bliss, managing partner of Godfrey & Kahn. “We look forward to taking an active role in recruiting, selecting and mentoring each fellowship recipient.”

Founded in 1957, Godfrey & Kahn maintains offices in Madison (LaFollette Godfrey & Kahn), Milwaukee, Appleton, Green Bay, and Waukesha, WI; Washington, DC; and Shanghai, PRC. With more than 200 attorneys, Godfrey & Kahn provides legal and business advice to clients ranging from small businesses and governmental entities to large privately and publicly held national and international companies.
